Ivan Orsic / Dec 22, 2019

If you're in need of some inspiration for some last-minute gift ideas, look no further. Let's review some of our favorite stocking stuffers for the season!

Fishpond Tacky Fly Dock

From midges to streamers, the Fly Dock can be slapped on pretty much any surface using the supplied 3M adhesive strip. Store, protect, and organize your flies on the go.

Rising 6" Ultralight Pliers

From cutting leader and tippet to mashing barbs and securing split shot, the Ultralights are perfect for the trout angler in your life! Don't forget about the internal spring which makes life a lot easier on the water.

Abel Nippers

Time-proven and battle tested, the Abel Nippers are a mainstay in the fly fishing world. With ultra-durable, high performing jaws that can cut the smallest tippet to the braided backing, there's no question the Abel Nippers are the cream of the crop. It shouldn't be a surprise that these nippers are available in a wide variety of finishes. These might be a little rich for some people's stockings, but they're worth every penny.

Scientific Anglers Rod Sleeve

Unique braided construction perfect for storing fully rigged rods or rods broken in half. Store your rod on the boat, in the truck, and the like. Protect your tips, your guides, the fit and finish of your rods while in storage or transport.

Simms Stripping Guard

Line burn is enemy of a good time. Don't let your angling friends or family have a good time ruined and help them protect their fingers on the water.


There aren't many things that go together better than Fly Fishing and Football! As always we are proud supports of our home town teams! Our all new Home Team Logo Fly Patch can be placed anywhere from your cooler to your truck.

Fishpond Tacky Flydrophobic Fly Box

For the longest time, waterproof fly boxes have kept water out. But, they've also kept water in. So, when you store your wet flies in your fly box (we've all done it), you've inevitably experienced some rusting and damage to your flies. This is where the Flydrophobic fly boxes set themselves apart from the rest. They are both waterproof and breathable. Featuring a breathable eVent Fabric, the Flydrophobic Fly Box allows for moisture to dissipate and escape, but prevents moisture from entering the fly box. With an inner gasket forming a precise seal, water is kept out and the Flydrophobic Fly Box features the first latchless closure system on the market.

SIMMS Waterproof Tech Pouch

Simms’ submersible Waterproof Tech Pouch is a survival suit for your digital devices, featuring welded construction in conjunction with secure, roll-top zip closure. The clear TPU front and phone camera window enhance operations, while a secure-clip adds convenient attachment options.

Fishpond Swift Current Thermometer

At this point, it's no secret. We absolutely believe wholeheartedly in the brand new Absolute leader and tippet from Scientific Anglers. Fluorocarbon is a necessity when chasing those elusive tailwater trophies and tippet that has industry-leading wet knot strength seems like a no brainer.

Abel Fishpond Tacky Daypack Fly Box - X2

The Day Pack 2X is truly the minimalists dream setup. Gone are the days when you were forced to decide between bringing enough flies to cover the hatch or traveling light. With Tacky’s original, patented silicone anchoring technology and bi-directional slits lining both sides of the box, up to 360 flies fit right in the pocket of your wet wading shorts. Isn’t compromise overrated? We think so.

Rising Nippas

If you don't trust yourself to hang on to those Abel Nippers...consider the classic Nippas. The time tested design of standard line cutters left us unfulfilled, so we ensured the quality of our cutting blades, and dipped them in rubber for better grip and easier identification.
